Why Spain would win?
This is a very important match as Spain is fighting for life and for their next round booking. Spain is powered by Fernando Torres, David Villa and history where Spain have always beaten Chile. Their record against this team is remarkable — 7 wins, 1 draw, scoring 18 goals and conceding only 3.
But then again, we have seen how France has bowed out of group stage, how defending champions Italy was beaten by Slovakia which is a team everyone dismissed before the tournament began.
Why Chile would win?
This team has not yet lost and they have shown how committed they are in winning. This team also has three star players in Bravo, Orellana, and Suazo playing for the Spanish league which gives them mastery of their opponents tonight.
As I said, favorites have gone out of this tournament badly beaten (France, Italy), Chile might just add Spain to the list of big name losers this year.
